'The Things They Carried' is 'common' reading

“The Things They Carried” is the reading of choice for the Campus Common Theme: Waging War, Waging Peace, this semester. The novel (Bantam Books, December 1998) is “an arc of fictional episodes, taking place in the childhoods of its characters, in the jungles of Vietnam and back home in America two decades later.” (BarnesandNoble.com) Join in the discussions at https://blog.uwgb.edu/commontheme/.
